Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Well, on the bright side of things the four Episode I repacks won't ship in anywhere near the numbers of all the January and February figures. The chances of seeing Aurra Sing or Mawhonic becoming obnoxious pegwarmers in Vintage Collection packaging are pretty slim.

Seriously, how often do you even see the newer stuff to even begin with?

And Fluttershy makes them all complete!




My niece came over and that's why there are few pets and no luggage. She insisted that she hold onto them for safe keeping.

Don't they just look like a pretty, pony rainbow?
The only thing that annoyed me was Rarity's hair. They had it taped in multiples, and once I got it all undone, her hair parts in 3 different directions. It's going to take a lot of grooming to get that fixed!

I just never liked the look of the brushies, far too like G3 and too far off the proper design. And what is that dog like thing beside what I presume is Twilight?

I'm not sure, but I think it's the little dog/puppy accessory that comes with Sparkle in her package. I've seen them before. Little pets for the Ponies or something.

I'll stick with finding some kind of modelling clay to make a little hat for my AJ figure.

It's... it's... it's horrifying, is what it is.

Yeah, which is silly because they could have given Gummy to Pinkie Pie, Spike to Twilight, Angel to Fluttershy, and Opalescence to Rarity, all of which was established in the first half of Season 1. Yet they didn't. I love Hasbro for all of their neat ideas, but I hate that they seem not to act on them when it would benefit everyone, including themselves.

New photo of the upcoming Speeder Bike with Scout Trooper 3.75" scale figure and vehicle set! Great window box on this thing, and the Trooper and Bike both appear to be all(or largely)new!

Yowza! Mattel made me an extremely happy man today! Elastigirl, Uncle Sam, Constantine, and Lead were announced as the remaining DC Club figures for this year (complete Metal Men, YAY!) Then they announced some of next years figures including Saint Walker, Larfleeze, Phantom Stranger, Elongated Man, and Wally West! As if that weren't enough, they have to go and announce the bi-monthly Watchmen Club. All six main characters in DCUC scale!

I think I need to lie down for a while.

We're also getting Jocasta Nu on a Vintage Collection card! She comes with a pedestal and bust of Count Dooku from the halls of the Jedi Archives.

The downside? She's a Brian's Toys/online exclusive and will cost $24.99.

I've been waiting ten years for a Jocasta figure. I had a suspicion something like this might happen with her when she finally got made but I wasn't sure.
